Tenth Year
con TO COURT
The   Case of Kelly vs the
Hall  Mines.
THE OASE ADJOURNED
Mr Oroasdaile's Evidence���Examination of
Mr Iletchcr���Bain vb the Reco
Mines.
A small but select audienca, consisting chiefly of mining experts, enjoyed a well earned repose yesterday in
court. Evidently thev intended to
listen to the important case of Kelly
vs. the Hall Wines, hut the legal proceedings did not appear to disturb
them much.
The defendant company's counsel,
Mr. Bowes, then proceeded to open his
caso.
He commenced by calling Mr. H.
Oroasdaile the manager of tho Hall
Mines.
Mr. Croasd<sie's evidence was to refute that of the plaintiff's, viz : That
the land expropriated was absolutely
necessary for tho company's requirements. Mr. DavyB, the superintendent of the Silver King mine, Mr.
Frank Fletcher, tho alderman of that
ilk, and Mr. Bruce, a mining expert
from Scotland were then called to substantiate Mr. Oroasdaile's evidence.
All the witnesses were cross examined, Mr. Fletcher iu particular being
rather severely bandied by Mr. Elliot
touching his engineering quahfica-
tons. According to Mr. Klliot an engineer should pas* un I lamination before
dubbing himself n full blown authoi-
ity on engineering mutters.
Tiio objeo.'j' V cross esfil.,ina, ,"
was to show ihat the defendant com
pany could get along very well with
less land than 300 teet. Mr. Bowes
then addressed the court for tho defence.
But the judge had misgivings about
the tramway. The particulars, in hia
opinion, seemed to point out that the
plaintiff would make the proof of the
tramway being within the act a part
of his case. Mr. Bowos seemed to
think that the judge had already disposed of that point.
Mr. Justice Drake thought that there
was something iu the fact that this
tramway was au aerial arrangement.
The question was whether such a tramway came within the Aot. However,
as it was getting lato he would adjourn the case until 10.SO today.
At a late hour Mr. W. A. Macdonald moved, in the caso  of Bain vs. the
to strike out a caso for assessment of
damages on tne ground of insufficient
notice The plaintiff had sued the
Reco mine for damages for injury received when working there and had
recovered judgment by default. He
now sought to   have   the   damages as
sessed but in  failing   to   give   .
notice   had   technically     erred.    Mr
Justice Drake ordered   the   case to   bo
struck our  so the  plaintiff  will  have
to wait un... ��� ���

solent manner: "I don't know."
Luna berated the officer vigorously
for his insolence, whereupon the captain put his haiirl upon his revolver.
Luna instantly drew his revolver and
iired at the captaiu, who was only a
second behind the general in drawing
his wnapon. Tho captain rotnrued the
Are. Both missed and Colonel Ramon
interfered, drawing his sword, where
upon the sergeant of the guard stabbed
him with a bayonet. Tho entire
guard then pounced upon Luna and Ra
mon with bayonets and' bolos, killing
both. The wounds of both men were
numerous.
The foregoing information was sent
by a Filipino leader, Pedro Paterno,
to his brother in Manila, by special
courier, and is confirmed from other
sources. The assassinaticn of Luna
recalls the similar fato of Andres Bon-
fucie, in Oavite province, in tho beginning of the reovlntion. Both were
rivals of Agninaldo for leadership of
the Filipinos.
GOLD FROM  SOUTH AFRIOA.
Washington, June 14.���The output of

than 19,098,595 of gold are heing
shipped each week from South Africa.

Bion today in connection with its investigation of trusts. His testimony
related almost entirely to the sua industry and he opened with a vigorous
attack upon the cistoms tariff which
he deolared was the, "Mother of all
trusts" becoming   such   by providing,
an   inordinate   protection  to manufactured articles."
He asserted that a tariff of ten per
cent was high as any tariff should be.
He continued that sugar was discriminated against in the tariff in the interest of the Louisiana qane growers
the best sugar makers, and the sugar
growers of the Hawaiian Islands to
these interests he contended, the United States contributed $24,000,000 which
was taken out of tho pockets of the
people. The protection on sugar
amounted to only one eighth of  a cent

Paris, June 14.-Late today, lifter

carehad requested the president to
Brant him until tomorrow to form a
cabinet as he has been unable to see
certain statesmen, he  was  desirous of

but meotB witb numerous difficulties.
Ho has been especially desirious of
having M. Bourgois, M. Krautz and
Delcasse in tho ministry. M. Bourgois declines to abandon his mission
St The Hague. M.Delcasse declines to
take anything but the Foreign Office
portfolio, while M. Poincare wants
him at the Ministry of the Interior, or
the Ministry of Marine, and M.Krautz
raises difficulties concerning the Dreyfus trial, pointing out that he has discussed tho matter with M. Cassimir
Porrior It iB understood that several
prominent men have ;efnsed to enter
the cabinet. These rebuffs are likely
to discourage M. Poincare, who is mod-
est and diffident, and is inclined to
steer clear of political troubles.

Coroner's Jury Blame Miners Union's For the Late Riots.
Wardner, Idaho, June 14.���The le-
sponsibilty of the riots of April 29 and
the murder of Smith aud Obeyne has
been placed by the ooroner's jury upon
the miner's unions as organizations.
That will be the essence of the verdict, which is to be made publio the
latter part of this week. The jury after spending five weeks' time and examining nearly 500 witnesses as to the
causes of the outrages, is now determined that beyond doubt the orimes
originated within the unions and the
heavy on us of all the day's deeds rests
with the organizations. Whatever
donbt tbe jurymen may ever have
held was long ago dispelled by the evidence whioh has been produced. All
that now romainB is to settle upon
the form of tho ver.iict.
Today the jury spent four hours
working over the phraseology, and
made some minor changes. Since the
destruction of the Bunker Hill mill
and the murder of the two men have
beeu laid at the doors of the union hy
the jurymen the verdi. t will not name
anv particular criminals in connection
with it. That task will be left with
tho grand jury now in session at Wallace.
Another Hard Tussle for the AniericanB-
Drove the Rebels Before Thein���
Killed and Wounded.
Manila, June 14.���4:40 p. m.���The
Filipinos retreated several miles southward, after yesterday's engagement, of
the strongly fortified town of Imus.
The shelling of the American warships
drove the rebels from Bacoor, so the
Americans control several more miles
of coast. General Lawton and his
staff, and a troop of the 6th cavalry,
started to ascertain the nature of tho
insurgent position, lie rode five miles
along the coast of Baooor without discovering the enemy, and found the
town full of white flags but there were
no soldiers there. The women and
children, who had fled to the woods
during the bombardment, were camping in the ruins of their homes. The
shells had almost knocked the town to
pi3C6B. The big church was wrecked
and many buildings were ruined.
Even the trees and shrubbery were
torn as by a hailstorm. Several women and children came into the American towns for refuge and the road
from Bacoor was covered all day long
witb processions of them on foot aud
in wuts driving animals aud carrying
goods on their heads. The appearance
of the battlefield testified to tbe fierceness cf yesterday's fighting.   The trees
almost   torn  down   by    bullets.    Tbe
American   officers   intimate that  100

Doodle" and "Star Spangled Banner. "
When the second noble appeared
on thobaloony waving the Union .lack,
the whole throng nf   people OBUghl  U|i
thn    sentiment  and  sent cheer after
cheer into the air then the two nobles
crossed the flae,s and waved them to-
nether, forming a most beautiful sight,
under the otroumstanoes   one   nf   inoro
than usual effect. The band played a
potpourri of national airs of England
and the United States, after whioh tbe
nobles dispersed and entered the hotel.
While no Arabic Regalia attraoted
attention to tho nobles of Iho Rami sis
Temple, they were nevertheless, the
oyUOBure of all eyes from the time
they left tbo station to the finish of the
graceful scene at tbe Tiffany House.
The military baud, m full Highland
costnnio and waving ribbons was tho
Bpeoatoula'r part of the entry of the
Toronto nobles into Buffalo. Tbo parade of the Sbrinera tonight in which
5,000 gorgeously attired marchers took
part was one of the most lnagoifioent
sights that Buffalo has ever witnessed.

New Richmond. Wis., June 14.���
Thirty-two new graves were made today in tho two little cemeteries of tbe
town, a constant succession of funerals
threading a passage through the littered street all day long. There is still
a large number of unburied dead and
save for the faot that a large number
of coffins failed to arrive today, it is
likely the number of funerals would
have been closo to fifty.

Mayne Daly, a meeting of the dioceao
committee of the Kootenays. Thero
were present Aichdeacou Peutreatb of
the diocese of Columbia, Rev. II. Ako-
hurst and W. Johnstone of Nelson,
Rev. H. Irwin, Hon. T. Mayne Daly,
and A. W. Dyer of Rossland. It will
bo rememberod that this provisional
committee was appointed last August
by the Auglioau Synod of British Columbia, for the purpose of formulating
the method of erecting the Kootenay
into a dioceso which should bo seper-
ate from New Wostminster. This is
practically accomplished, and there
only remains tho formal approval of
the committee's proposals by a meeting of the Kootenay churchmen, which
will be called this summer, and thou
ratification by Bishop Dart of Now
Weatminster, who is expected out from
England this month. The committee
are confident that the present prospects of the Kootenays justify its action,and that the newly organized dio-
eeso will arouse still greater interest in
Anglican church matters.

The freight handlers had a big meeting tonight and decided to remain out
until the demand of the Erie housemen for an incroaso of one cent, nn
hour more in wages is granted. The
ore handlers ou the Minnesota Dock
who were fired on last night did not
go to work today, declaring that thoy
wero afraid to do] so. The ore handlers on the other docks havo also refused to continue to work until thoy
are guaranteed protection by the police. Committees were appointed to
wait on Mayor Dicht and Superintendent of Police Bull and demand this
protectiou. At tin- freight handlers
meeting tonight Organizer Miohael
Joyoe advised the men to carry revolvers when tbey return to work. He
said it was absolutely necessary for
their own protection.
President MoMabon of tbo Sooopers
Union has promised the active support of the seoopers to the freight
handlers. MeMahon says that the
present trouble is beyond bis control
and he is urging President Keef of the
Longshoremen'a Assoiation to como to
Buffalo at onco.
HOW IT WAS ARRANGED
Management of the Duncan Mines Make
Satisfactory Arraneements of the
Difficulty.
The   management   of   the    Duncan
Mines bave already let two contracts,
one for tunnelling on tho Royal Canadian the other for underground work
at the Grauite.
Negotiations are almost completed
for the letting of the contract for the
balance of the work necessary to fully
equip these mines with their full complement of bauds, and, in all probability, both tho Granite and Royal
Canadian will be working in full
swing within tbe next 24 hours.
Before the recent trouble the men at
the Royal Canadian bad been working
ten hour shifts at tho rate of $3 per
d ly. They were only charged 75
cents (instead of tho regulation fl)
per day for board and t'io work, being
only tunnelling in tho side of tbe hill,
was not as hard a proposition as
sinking.
Then the Union premptorilv ordered tbe men to leave their work which
order they unfortunately obeyed. Some
of tho men interviewed tho management of the mine in Nelsou and, seeing tbo error they had committed, expostulated with the Union officials.
These officials when coi'frouted with
the pluin tarts of tho case, admitted
tbat thoy had made a mistake iu ordering tho men to ceaso work and

management and th��>y declined to. reinstate their former employes unless
the full amount for board, viz. fl per
day, was charged.
Finally tbe work was let by contract us before stated. This is distinctly n slap in the faco for tbe self
opinlonate l Union.

Before the preparations for Dominion

making   it.    Some    oomniittees  may
bave got too   muoh,   others too little,
and more money than the fund  wonld
afford may  bave   been   appropriated.
On these points  The   Miner   does not
feel either   called   upon or qualified to
speak.    But it is certainly most extraordinary  that   any individual   should
take it upon himself to revise tbe distribution, in  contempt  of  tbe aotion
of the committees and without  even a
pretense   of   consultation with   tbem.
One association,   the Gun  Olub,   has
had the spirit to rebuke  tbis insolent
assumption of authority,   and   it will
be well for  Dominion   Day sports if
others take early occasion to  do  likewise.
As matters are working, it wonld
seem that these preparations have
fallen, or are about to fall, into
tbe hands of a clique, who are deter
mined to manipulate them for their
own glorification. Tbey are taking
oontrol of three thousand five hnn-
dred dollars generously contributed
by tbe citizens for a publio purpose,
and are appropriating tbe money, not
as the committees who are representing the citizens desirs, but according
to their awn will and fancy. Unless
this disposition is cheeked, and the
celebration kept, as it was intended to
be, a oiitzen'a affair, it -wilt be ii order to consider whether the subscribers
to the fund should be called upon to
pay over their promised contributions.
gition was so oareful as to avoid. He
could find a half-breed dog driver
guilty of taking a bribe, but no effort
was made to discover why the bribe
should have been given. A person
Who got himself admitted through a
side door got in irregularly,and the irregularity must have been known to
the offioial inside; something irregular
must have transpired between the two,
or the practice would not have been
permitted.
The Free Press does not go beyond the door or the doorkeeper,
however. It do3s not want to. As
at present oonducted, it is as impossible for The Free Press to be honest in
the discuBsion of political events as it
is for a pair of yoked oxen to go

Right! !
The Miner has received a copy of resolutions passed by the Silverton Miners' Union, at their regular meeting
held on the 10th. One of them denounces The Miner because of its
"speoial sophistical and parasitical
pleading for those who despoil us." It
appears tbat we do this in consideration
of a small portion of the spoils. Of the
general tenor of the resolutions the last
in the list will give a fairly accurate
idea:
"Resolved, That we do not consider
ourselves any better than the miners
of the Oouer d'Alenes. Outrageous and
arrogant wrongs have ever provoked
violence. The history of no country
needs to be closely searched to find records of violent resistance to tyrants.
Good citizens of America disguised
as Indians, threw overborad the sacred
property of the capitalist on the occasion of th Boston Tea Party.
Cromwell and   other good people of
England  cut   off   the   sacred   head of
Oharles the First.
Oaesar had his Brutus.
The Oapots had their guillotine.
The   Ooeur   d'Aleners  blew up ihe
Bunker Hill mill.
Let tyrants take warning !
In conclusion we firmly declare that
we are good and true citizens,   organized   to   secure   justice,   and   not   to
wrong any man. But we are not fools,
and we   will   not   rejeot   the   use  of
means effectual, jnst beoanse tbey may
not be conventionally popular. "

FIRE IN NEW FOTJNDLAND.
After long and patient study of Commissioner Ogilvie's report on   the   investigation of those charges, The Winnipeg Free Press has been able to discover one clear instance of wrongdoing. ���
A    half-breed    named     Villeneuve,
who had been a dog driver and spioinl
constable and  who  was employed  as
doorkeeper   at the Government  offices
in Dawson, was undoubtedly guilty of
"haviiig taken money for admitting an
occasional   individual   into  the  offloe
out of his turn."   That is  the  worst,
and, indeed, all, that the evidence discloses.    What a small matter   to make
such  a   pother    about I   Conservative
newspapers have little to do when thny
oan allow such a mare's nest as this to
send them shrieking all over the oountry  of  corruption    and  venality.    A
wretohed half-bieed, whose moral education was obtained at the  tail end of
a dog train, succumbed to the  temptation of a bribe from some mining speculator in a hurry. It is on such a trumpery   affair   as  this   that   Opposition
newspapors rest their oharges of  maladministration in   tho   Yukon.   How
preposterous I   Mr. Ogilvie, that painfully conscientious official, labored dil
igen;ly for   weeks   to   ascertain what
truth there wis in the charges, and all
he oould discover w��.s this venial bribing of   a   half-breed   dog driver  who
was    temporarily   employed   as door
keeper.    Not muoh wonder the  honest
Free    Press     waxes   indignant.   To
think that on suoh   wretched evidence
as  this   the administration of the Interior Department and  the repuration
of   the Government itself should   be
challenged   is  enough to make  one's
blood boil.
But why was this "occasional individual" in so great a hurry that he
had to bribe a doorkeeper to let him in
out of his turn? Whom did he go in
for to see? An what was it he had to
see him about, that it could not wait
its turn? Why should even a poor
half-breed dog driver be bribed? It
must have been followed by something
irregular inside. The bribing of the
doorkeeper was a small affair, but it
oould not have, been nece��sary unless
tho man in a hurry had something
orooked to fix up with the man to
whom the doorkeeper admitted him.
The almiuistraton of Yukon affairs
will survive all that took p.vse on
tho outside of the door; it is what
transpired within that has brought
the Department of tbe Interior under
���uoli an avalanche of suiploion. Aad
it wan this that Mr. Ogilvie'i inveiti
St. Johns, June 18.���The village of
Bay of Islands settlement on the western coast of Newfoundland forming

shore, was destroyed by a forest fire

British warships on the coast are
affording assistance to the destitute
people until other steps can be taken
to relieve them.

A PLEASANT EVENING
Programme Presented���A Youthful Sincer
Makss a Hit���A Very Successful Affair,
The entertainment laafc uiglic at
the Opera House proved a success, both
as to the enjoyment of the audience
as well as financially. Altogether
some forty ohildron took part and all
worked well together. The eostumos
were very pretty. The first number on
the programme was the little operetta "Gypsies," by 18 young Indies,
tastily arrayed in true Romany style.
Their singing was good, and made a
good impression.
The next event wns a solo hy Master
Louis Johnstone, which .proved the
hit of the evening. Dressed as a cavalry officer of tho British service, this
little man, aged but four years old,
sang "Soldiers of the Queen" in a
manner which touched every heart,
and evoked thunders of applause. In
response to the encore, he received, he
sang another song which also was very
good.
After this a Red, White and Blue
drill by ten pretty little girls, although simple was pleasing aud attractive. The little girls went
through each movement, carefully and
considering that their ages averaged
six years did very well indeed.
Miss Gertie Smith then sang two
songs, the second one in response to
a most hearty enoore Both songs were
rendered sweetly.
A "Skipping Rope Dance" followed
iu response to an enoore, by a skirt
dance, by Miss Francis Hudson, was a
very taking feature of the entertainment, Miss Hudson acquitting herself
extremely well. All the movements
were done most gracefully and in perfect time.
Six boys next appearod upon the
stage, dressed in the style of a century
ago, armed with singlesticks, with
which thoy proceeded to dust each
other. Thoir manner ot handling the
sticks was good ; nnd showed that they
bad availed themselves of the short
time thoy had to learn the singlestiek
drill very thoroughly. The boys
moved very quickly and made the
sticks move still quioker. The sword
exercises were loft out, owijg to the
diHicnlry of procuring swords in timo.
Miss Ruth Cordingly rendered a solo
on the piano next, very nicely and
then Miss Mabel McCaudlish gave a
violin solo, which was well received,
her touch being a very sympathetic ono.
Part two opened with a minuet by
four girls aud four boys. The boys
wore dressed in velvet knickerbockers
and coals plentifully trimmed with
lace and niilles, and wore powdorcd
wigs. The girls wore gowns of
quaintly old-fashioned styles, long
deal and gone, and also had their hair
di n.i up in powder. This minuet also
evoked great applause, aud finally was
repeated, the youngsters in this forming some morst charming tableaus.
The liuico drill, the next on the programme, was presented by 17 girls.
and a most interesting series of drill
movements were presented. The girls
wore long Empire gowns, trimmed
with rosettes of parti-colored ribbons,
and carried long lances, with bright
spear heads gaily decorated with long
streamers of ribbons. The last figure
of this drill was especially worthy of
mention. In its the five smallest girls
formed a square, turning inwards,
and elevated their laucjs, forming a
double arch,the others marching in and
out, twining back and forth between
the arches, finally halting, forming
in line, and giving a representation of
dismounted lancers receiving a charge
of cavalry.
Tho boys came ou next for the lance
contest. Iu thu,four boys armed with
long lances, on the end of each of
which was tied a sponge dipped in
flour, endeavored, while at tho same
time guarding himself to plentifully
bedaul) his opponent's shirt frout,
which was covered with black oloth,
with (lour. The boys went nt it very
fiercely and in an extremely short timo
had each other covered with flour from
head to foot.
When the curtain roso again, it wns
for a comic negro song by Mr. Olaronoo
Goepel and "Miss Heraphine Snow-
flake" the hitter name being a youug
lady who was decidedly colored. Both
took their parts to perfection, and
had to como out, after the song was
finished for an encore.
Tho last on tho programme was a
tableau "Good Night," in which all
the smaller ohildren taking part were
gronped, preparing for bed, after which
led by Master Louis Johnstone the
ohildron sng "God Save the Quoeu."
The audience joined in. and the our-
tnin fell for the last timo.
venes.it is broken into fantastic snap is
by the rising water and romantic littl-
bays, capes, and islands are formed,
the high water not lasting long enough
each year to round off the bolder
angles into the smoother shapes possessed by the shore line that is exposed
all year to the action   of   the wave?.
The high wa'.er is also causing an
easily perceptible current in the usually placiC portions of the lake.
Near Balfour the water is getitng
uncomfortably near some shacks, and
at Five Mile point the tracks of the
Nelsou and Fort Sheppard Railway
run through pretty deep water. Some
of the telegraph pi les which follow
the railway are now standing in six
feet ot water. Around Nelson itBelf
tbe flats nre now nearly all flooded,
but so far no damage of any account
hns been done. Three or four shacks
which had been built too low down
havo been flooded, and the City wharf
apnears as if oart of it would give up
the ghost. The 0. P. R. wharf, at
its eastern termination hns some four
feet of water over it, while the tracks
are about eight feet down. Below
the City, around the shipyard the water has encroached considerably, but
owing to the formation of the land
there it is not liable to do any damage.
The rapids on the Kootenay River
commencing about two miles below
the   Oity,       gradually     increase    in
Baker to Victoria streets.
Already visitors for the coming let of
July celebration are beginning to arrive; ueveral reaching town yesterday.
A gontleman from the Boundary
country reports that tbe first train on
the C. P. R. will probably enter Cascade City within 80 days   from   now.

Mr. Riley has been awav for a well

CELEBRATION    SUBSCRIPTIONS.
Van Houten, on Huckle-
-Riohard     Dwyer,      on
Slocan Oity, June 12.���R. Randolph
Bruoe, of Nelson, has seoured a four-
fifths interest in the Marmion and
Maryland on the second north fork of
Lemon oreek for Toronto parties.
Not mcoh work has been done on these
claims, but the ledge shows n p
strongly on the surface and an average
sample of the vein gave $54 in gold to
the ton. It is intended to put on a
foroe of men at once. A deal is expected to be put through shortly for the
Neepawa on Ten Mile oreek. Considerable interest is being manifested this
season in Ten-Mile oreek, as well as
the whole distriot south of Lemon
oreek
Work is being done un the Dalh.ou.sie,
Blaok Cloud, Mabou, Ohio and West-
inouiit, and other Ten-Mile properties
and some good results have already
been attained this year..
On the Enterprise a force of men
have been busy for tbe past week in
loading the ore on cars for shipment.
Twenty-two oars were shipped last
week containing 440 tons and 600 tons
more will be brought down from the
mine in a few days. This ore is only
part of tbat taken out by the late owners in development and will net the
present oompany over $50,000. The
mine will be put io trim at once for .
nciivu work, whioh it is expocted will]
be gone on with as soon as the labor
question is settled. Nearly every
mine is now closed down in the Slooan
nwiiii,' to the dispute re wages under
the eight-hour system, as both the
mine owners and tbe miners are determined, the one not to pay the old
rate of $3.00 and the others not to acoept the $8 offered. It may result in a
compromise on both sides. It is to be
hoped some arrangement will soon be
mutually agreed on, as at present the
oountry is losing valuable time.
���  ���  ���
Work on the Venus on Toad Mountain, is going ahead fast Dr. Doolittle has men on preparing, to ground
sluioe the lower claims. Tbe trail oon-
ueoting the mine with the Athabasca
road has just been completed. Two
tunnels have been oommenced on . the,
pay Btraak in order to out the ledge,
giving 100 feet stope. The property is
looking better tnan ever and the Doctor is very sanguine as to its future.

PREJUDICE
Is the cause of many a Batch of Bread having to be thrown
into the sewer, and a woman's time and labor gone
with it. If you weren't so prejudiced you could have
just as good success with your Bread as your neighbor.
We advise : Throw prejudice aside, and lor your next
Baking try a sack of
3   STAR   FLOUR.
Thousands are using it with success ;   why not you ?
doesn't suit you, you don't have to pay for it.
